Image Attribution explained
When using copyright free images, it’s important you pay attention to crediting the original author. Although an image may be listed as ‘Labeled as Reuse’ in a Google search, you should always visit the page where the image lives and look at information relating to how the image can be used and how it should be credited.
It’s worth noting that every website will be slightly different in terms of what it is asking for in terms of attribution, please be sure to check details when using a photo and credit exactly as specified.
Please note: Any images that are uncredited or have incorrect attribution will be instantly removed from the site
